Northsound event raises £25,000 for kids

Northsound Radio in Aberdeen has generated £25,000 for its charity Cash for Kids, marking 15 years of supporting local children.

Their charity ball took place at Aberdeen’s Marcliffe Hotel and Spa and included entertainment by singer Emeli Sande.

Cash for Kids charity manager Michelle Herd said: “Northsound’s Cash for Kids has been supporting local children who need a helping hand for the past 15 years, and all the money raised in this area stays locally.

“We thought it would be a great opportunity to mark our 15th birthday by having a charity ball and we are thrilled with the amount we managed to raise on the evening, particularly as we are about to start distributing the funds to applicants.

“I’d like to thank everyone who came along on the night and dug deep to raise such a terrific amount for local children who need a little bit of help.”

Every year, the charity aims to raise £200,000, which is distributed through grants to individuals, clubs, groups and organisations.
